    I took this picture last April at Keukenhof (Netherlands) with my old Canon Powershot A75. Comments and critics are welcome.

    No. This is "Keukenhof" in Holland, the biggest show of tulips and other spring flowers you can think of, and I think that one day I must go there, too, to see it with my own eyes (and camera), only the huge amounts of tourists travelling there in the "tulip season" scare me off a bit. But especially from what I can see in your photo here, mincel, the flowers are definitely worth it!
    What a clever idea to have the hyacints snake through the tulips as if they were a river!!!

    But all in all this looks very much like "Landscape" to me, so I am going to move it over to there, ok?

    Beautiful...I'd crop it down to just above the furthermost yellow flowers at the back. Leave just a bit of green over top of them. To get rid of the washed out sky area.
    Nice stuff! :D

    Thanks for the comments and the critics friends. ;)

    Here is the cropped version. I am not sure the frame is good, but...

    Really really good, I love the colours, and I must admit I like the border you have added as well. Very well one. :D

    You cropped it just right IMO :thumbup: :D
    Personaly I'd prefer a thinnish black border or none at all...but of course that's just personal preference.

    Agreed. This image is all about intensity of color; the bit of washed out sky along the top pulls the eye away, if that makes sense. Beautiful place! :)
